Establishing and sustaining a strategic alliance demands honest communication, careful planning and the alignment of vision between the respective partners. In truth, such a company can no longer be viewed as a stand-alone enterprise, but as a network of organizations that is larger and stronger than any stand-alone company. The structure of the networked organization is defined by its interconnectedness that flows outward from the center in all directions.

This interconnectedness is what enables the enterprise to have a single voice that speaks and is heard internally by the all its parts, to listen and receive critical information from any area within the organization. The greatest of these network-enabling tools, is the Internet, which provides communication and delivery of products and services to the world. The Internet is literally breaking down the walls around information and the ability to move knowledge to every point of business contact. In essence, the hardware and software that comprises an enterprises networking infrastructure is the communication strength of that organization. It is the vehicle that allows each member of the network of organizations to exhibit the facets of the business in which it excels, and to integrate their efforts working together to meet customer needs. Additionally, using the Internet, organization can cultivate personalized business-to-consumer relationships and business-to-business relationships.

The advances of networking technology have had a significant impact on a company's productivity.
